I enjoy this study bible very much. The one thing I can’t figure out is how or if I can sync between my iPhone and iPad. I read the Bible in both but forget my place where I stopped reading in one or the other. I found the sync feature but it doesn’t accomplish syncing between the two to show me where I left off reading. I would love to have someone give this information.
The book title drop down no longer works after the last update, making it difficult to use. How do I contact the developer?
To open my bible app and see exactly what god what’s you to read. Thank you god. I am grateful for everything
I have been having problems with my eyes, this is a great app to have. I love the notes. Great.
This app is divinely blessed and a great resource for any person interested in learning more from God’s word. It is useful for beginners as well as experienced Bible students. The insights in the commentary are truly inspired and will help draw the reader closer to God if their hearts and minds are open to receiving the message!
This makes studying so much easier which makes it more likely that I’ll actually study. And after all, isn’t that what it’s all about? I have the devotional of the day turned on and read that every morning and that gets me started. From there I start cross referencing verses from different books with the easy to follow guides and read notes along the side that help clarify difficult to read passages or give information about the time period. Before I know it I’ve been reading for 30 minutes to an hour. I love it.
I have used the hardback paper edition this study Bible for years and always found it useful. Especially on controversial passages it is usually quiet fair in presenting differing viewpoints. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to navigate the app version of this very helpful book. I heartily recommend it.
Edited: ever since the last update, this app freezes every time I open it. I’m no longer able to use the app. Please fix this! I have appreciated studying the word with this app. It's really helpful to be able to read the word and glance over at the study notes without having to hunt for the related note. The app has made Bible study more pleasurable for me, specially since my vision is not that great, so reading a print Bible can be uncomfortable. However, I recently bought one of the commentaries. Ever since, I have had a lot of difficulty figuring out how to display the Bible, the notes, or the commentary when I want them. I think I may have figured it out now, but it literally took a couple of weeks. At first I could just see the commentary, then I was able to get the commentary and the Bible next to each other, but I couldn't get back the study notes. I guess once I figure it out, I will enjoy, but right now, it's annoying.
I love this app. The only improvement I would like to see is the ability to use my Apple Pencil to write notes. It is awesome to have the study notes to look at as I read the text!!
